Steel moment frames are used for seismic design in the United States and Japan and are highly regarded structural systems, but severe damage to steel frames occurred during the 1994 Northridge and 1995 Hyogoken-Nanbu earthquakes. Examination of similarities and differences in the engineering research and practice for these frames in the two countries provides insight into this important seismic issue. A brief history of the engineering practice in both countries is provided, and current… CONTINUE READING
